The Concert Under the Stars has become the kick-off event of the summer. Different from the typical benefit gala, the Concert is a casual “boots and blue jeans” affair with delicious local food and drink, fabulous upbeat music, and an unparalleled historic setting. It is truly not to be missed!

Travel back in musical time with us at the Concert Under the Stars!


The Breakfast Club

2019 Mainstage Act

HSP is thrilled to welcome The Breakfast Club®, the longest running, most recognized ’80’s tribute band in the United States, to the Concert’s main stage.  Formed in 1993, the group was the first of its kind.  The mission was simple: create an entertainment group that embodied the enigmatic, creative, and buoyant spirit of music and live performances of the original MTV generation of the 1980’s.  That mission remains today. The guys of The Breakfast Club® have shared the stage with numerous music legends, including but not limited to, Whitesnake, The Romantics, Poison, Drivin’n’Cryin’, Hootie and the Blowfish, White Lion, The Smithereens, Edwin McCain, and many others. When these talented band members take the stage, you’ll discover why The Breakfast Club® has millions of enthusiastic fans.


Gerry Rosenthal Trio

2019 Opening Act

Gerry Rosenthal is a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, singer-songwriter, and actor currently based in Jersey City, NJ who teaches private music lessons and gigs professionally around the tri-state area with numerous projects.  Gerry writes, records, and plays guitar with his own original band, Big Wake. Gerry, on acoustic guitar, will be joined by Jack Breslin on upright bass and Sean-David Cunningham on violin for an exciting performance just after the release of the Trio’s first EP.
